A different kind of craft is happening these days at The Beamhouse, the New American restaurant at Glastonbury’s The Tannery residential complex. A century ago at the site on New London Turnpike, Herman Roser & Sons produced leather from pig hides to be made into shoes, handbags, belts, gloves, wallets, watch straps, clothing, saddles and luggage, according to Courant archives. Now, in the former “beamhouse” space where hides were prepared to be tanned, the restaurant offers what it calls “finely crafted fare” highlighting local ingredients and seasonal flavors.

The Beamhouse is “kind of the last piece to the property,” says restaurant partner Jonathan Lynch of the “destination lifestyle community” that opened in the fall of 2017, which offers 250 apartments and amenities like a fitness gym, heated saltwater pool and patio and pet spa.  Bill Driggs, whose other restaurants Birch Hill Tavern in Glastonbury and 2 Hopewell and Sayulita in South Glastonbury have become area favorites, partnered with Lynch for the new project at the town’s upscale living space. The restaurant and bar opened Aug. 1, offering a mix of small sharing plates, entrees and flatbreads along with craft beer and cocktails.
